Do you see this picture? That is our week at basketball camp in a nutshell...
The cost for the camp was minimal. It cost $50, but then each child received a certificate, an imbroidered T-shirt, and a quality basketball at the end of the week. But, I still can't believe that I paid money to chase my son around a basketball court and fight with him to listen and pay attention. I could have done that at home for free.
I was embarrassed, and annoyed that there weren't more activities geared towards a 3-year-old who doesn't even understand what a basketball is.
Remember those self-defense classes that I've been taking, well the instructors have a karate school only blocks from our house. My husband and I have been debating whether or not to sign Jared up for these classes. The first month is free, so I figure that I have nothing to lose but my dignity.
This past week I took him there and he did it again. He didn't listen to the instrutors and ran away, but here's the best part....the instructors went and got him and brought him back, and when he ran away they did it again. I couldn't believe my eyes. Instructors that instruct! I will try again next week and see if Jared does better. I can't wait until he gets his little robe thing (I don't know that proper name for it yet).
